    Just wanted to say hello to the forum!

    I have just returned to the hobby after a few decades. It was in the 70's the last time I ran a scale train. My re-introduction began with the purchase of a HO Steam engine ... thinking "I really wish I had a steamer when I was a kid". Well, that turned into the thought of having a small n-scale layout on a 2x4 shelf in my home office and grew into a 36"x80" hollow core door. Now...I am considering an expansion to 3'x18'...does it ever stop? LOL

    Anyway, I look forward to reading what the forum has to offer and getting/giving a little help.

    I suppose I should add my interests:

    I am primarily interested in N-scale and since I grew up near the Howell rail yards, my primary focus is the L&N. My collection so far is a bit eclectic so I have a number of other locomotives from the PRR, NYC, CSX. I am also spread across a wide time frame...Late steam to modern.

    Welcome to Trainboard, another N Scaler here.

    I wish that I was in Indiana this week, Terra Haute on Wednesday, Indianapolis on Thursday, Brownsburg on Friday, Anderson on Saturday, and Speedway on Sunday...
